I like the shot, but I felt the Capitol looked a little flat (two dimensional). I took the liberty of diddling with curves in Photoshop to make it a bit more pronounced.

I'm so sick and tired of hearing about the Obama worship. Can't even escape it here. As the quote goes: "To change and to change for the better are two different things."

Not a bad photo and I love historical buildings, but I could care less about the inauguration.

Great photo! History will be made!
I really wish people who have different political views would not bring it here. I am sure there are pro conservative images on here. It is obvious this picture is in support of Obama. If you don't like it then do what everyone else does go to the next one. No need to be pessimistic and complain about "Obama worshipers."

The picture quality is very good. But I'm not too crazy on the angle. If it was actually possible, I would've loved for this pic to have been taken straight on, featuring the dozens of lines created by the rows of seats...and all of that leading up to the Capitol. And to the submitter's credit, it doesn't seem (to me at least) that his point was to bring up anything other than the historic event that is a presidential inauguration.

@trout: On that day, a straight on shot wasn't possible. I didn't want any people directly in front of the shot, and there was a constant crowd of people/tourists there. I also wanted to get a bit of the sky on that top right in the shot, which I don't think I would have gotten if I took the photo straight up.

Other than those two points, I think you have a valid point. Thanks for your critique!

Well Mateo1041, many people are equally sick and tired of the George Bush indifference. Careful using quotes you don't really understand. Your ilk has had 8 years to have its way. Look at the results. If you truly love this country then you'll respect your newly elected president. That happens to be Obama. Worship the man or not, I'm just stunned that you are still pretending that we needed anything but a radical change of course.

First off, Ill agree with Don Pablo at the top of this commentary page. I am glad to see a photo of the prep although.

I refuse to worship obama. Do I know what kind of job he will do? no of course not. I enjoy the art of this picture. It captures a great art of the capitol building. And as far as bush goes, he has prevented many terrorist attacks since 9-11 for those of you who have forgotten about that date. we have defended our country and done a pretty good job of it. it is the troops job to serve the country and they are aware of it totally 100% and they are WILLING to give their lives for their country. This country is becoming more and more unbiblical every day. I can only pray for mr. Obama.

You make a lot of assumptions, brizkit. That's all I really have to say.

To comment further on the photo, I agree with stubulman. The photo just seems flat and not very vibrant.

"Majestic City"? Try living close to it.

And for all this talk of "change"...change happens with every new President. And when they get elected, they find out how much power they really have. The proof is in the pudding, so I don't see why anyone is claiming anything about President Obama yet. He's been in office less than 24 hours. Everyone save their thoughts for a ways down the road, then talk, lest you look foolish later. Oh, and life is about so much more than money and the economy. I could almost not care less about the economy -- the economy is not the issue. If our lives are all about whether the economy is doing OK or not...well, what a miserable life that is.

As for the photo...I'd have to agree with stubulman -- it does look a little flat and 2D. Also, maybe that really was the coloring of everything that day, but I know what the capitol building looks like, and it looks a little too dark. I really like the chairs though.
